Subject: Represent Wake County on transit, not yourself

As a resident and tax payer of Wake County, I’d like to see the mass transit plan for Wake County on the November ballot. I vote in every election and think the people should have a say in this decision, not leave it solely up to you. Let’s remove the politics on this one, it’s too important to the future of our county.

On recent business trips to San Francisco and Pittsburgh, I only used public transit. The options in Wake County are pathetic. But you can change that. We can change it together. Getting that tax on the ballot is the first step. Are you willing to take that step with me?

Regards,
Jason Hibbets
